My first luxury car, and the start of a
beautiful relationship. This car is
outstanding. From a beautiful
exterior, to a plush and more than
comfortable and gorgeous interior, this
car has it all. I got the black garnet
color, because it was so unusual, with
the black leather interior, and it is
absolutely beautiful. I'm hooked on
Lexus quality from the car to the
dealership, a fabulous experience!
auto-dimming mirrors, leather and wood
interior, exterior styling (LOVE the
headlights!), interior comfort, low
cabin noise, fabulous sound system!
A bit more power would be nice, but
that's all I can think of. This car is
Just completed 500 mile trip in a new
ES. Outstanding for quiet, comfortable
ride, great stereo, and soft leather
seats. Minimal to no road noise with
Michelin tires. Fit and finish is
perfect - as expected of Lexus. New 5-
speed automatic transmission is very
smooth. Plenty of head and leg room in
front seats for six-footers. Lexus has
made major improvements since the ES
was redesigned last year. Averaged 27.5
mpg, and hope to improve on that after
engine is completely broken in.
Interior quality and comfort. Leather
seating and wood trim is unmatched by
rivals in my opinion.
Needs a bit more horsepower. Currently
at 210. Should be closer to 250 to be
similar to competition (Acura TL-S).
Could have a pwr outlet behind console
storage (instead of inside) to
accomodate cell phones.
I traded a 2002 Camry for this and
can't go on enough about this car. I
was sold on Lexus after buying an RX
300 for my wife a year ago and
couldn't wait to get my own. I have
enjoyed the vehicle very much for the
week and half I have now had it.
Extremely quiet, rich in luxury
amenitites and a pure joy to drive
